The Surface Book 2 Is Everything the MacBook Pro Should Be →

·

Owen Williams, on his blog Charged:

I’m back to say I was wrong, and I’ve found a machine that not only matches Apple’s standard of hardware quality, but goes far beyond it to demonstrate how a laptop of the future should work.

That machine is the 15-inch Surface Book 2 and somehow Microsoft has made the 2-in-1 that Apple should’ve been building all along, to the same level of quality I’d expect from anyone other than Microsoft.

I’ve used the Surface Book 2 as my daily computer for three months now and it’s consistently blown me away with how well considered it is across the board, how great the software works and has completely converted me into the touchscreen laptop camp.

Unless Apple gets their act together, start innovating, post regular CPU/GPU updates, my next notebook will most probably be a Surface Book. It’s not perfect by any means, and I’d miss macOS a lot, but I’d manage. What’s tempting me most is the removable screen which can be used with the full Adobe Lightroom experience. I wouldn’t mind a Surface Studio too, on the condition that it had a replaceable M.2 SSD instead of a hybrid drive and an upgradeable GPU.

  1. @moridin I’ve been considering the very same thing. The Surface Book 2 looks fantastic and with the Windows Linux Subsystem, I can do pretty much everything that I can on my Mac. It’s too bad Apple has taken the path they are currently on.

  2. @rbazinet I think I’ll wait to see what both Microsoft and Apple do in their next gen. machines. The Surface Book 3 could be even better. Anyway, I’m extremely tempted, but I’d miss some of my software, which is unavailable for Windows.
